GET­TING KIDS IN THE KITCHEN

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Get­ting your kids to eat enough fruit and veg­eta­bles can be a chal­lenge.

But food ed­u­ca­tor Glenda Gour­ley and her teenage daugh­ter Claire say they have the an­swer.

An on­line cook­ing pro­gramme cre­ated by the mother-daugh­ter team prom­ises to get kids in the kitchen and mak­ing smart food choices.

Ms Gour­ley says the It’s My Turn to Cook Tonight Bosch School Hol­i­day Pro­gramme, sup­ported by 5+ A Day, is the ul­ti­mate win-win for par­ents.

“Your kids are likely to be health­ier if they help with din­ner be­cause study af­ter study shows that a child who has prac­ti­cal food skills makes bet­ter food choices.”

The lat­est Food and Nu­tri­tional Guide­lines re­leased by the Min­istry of Health rec­om­mend par­ents in­volve their chil­dren in gro­cery shop­ping and the cook­ing of fam­ily meals.

Run­ning from Oc­to­ber 2 to 4, the pro­gramme will al­low chil­dren to learn to cook while in­ter­act­ing with other chil­dren on­line.

The pair was recog­nised by The Jamie Oliver Foun­da­tion on its web­site af­ter orig­i­nally tri­alling the pro­gramme in April this year.

Reg­is­tra­tion is $25 for eBook and $45 for hard-copy ver­sions of the pro­gramme’s books and ac­cess to all on­line re­sources.
